But the car also turns off when the battery eventually dies

I did they said the battery was good so was the alternator and starter. But the car itself wont make it to the store

How much do you know bout a cam sensor. Do you think thats it?

The camshaft sensor has nothing to do with the alternator light being on-Your problem here could be the computer controlled of the alternator's field generation circuit-

Dunno the cost of repairs it varies with location-Have the wiring checked from the alternator to the computer-if okay have the computer checked/tested-
